Subject [users@httpd] Require user and directory listing problem
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2006 14:51:17 GMT

I searched the web, apache documentation and mailing lists about this issue.
Either nobody mentioned this before or i missed a simple point somewhere.

Whatever, here is the deal:

I used .htaccess file in order to protect a directory using basic
authentication. Authentication works well but my problem is that i can not
see my protected directory in the parent directory's directory listing.

Normally i can see all non-protected directories in the parent directory's
directory listing.
I found out that exlusion from directory listing is caused by the "require
user emrah" line in .htaccess file. However i could not find a way to solve
this problem. I want my protected directory to be listed in the parent
directory's directory listing.

Is this "problem" normal? You can blame me :) if i missed a very simple

Apache conf can be send on demand

Here is the .htacces file:

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Access Test"
AuthUserFile /usr/local/parola/parolalar
require user emrah
